Vosne-Romanée "Aux Réas"

Story

The vintage
1942 bottles and 60 magnums have been produced for the vintage 2018.
Location
0.55 hectares of vines planted in 1954.
Its mid-slope position brings complexity to this wine, along with a sophistication worthy of some of the appellation’s premier crus.
Terroir
Located at the intersection of the Nuits and Vosne valleys, these wines are unique for two main reasons:
- Brown soil rich in limestone from the Combe de Vosne (“réas” meaning “small round stones”) which brings tension and vigor
- A steep slope ensuring the plot faces almost due south resulting in wonderful maturity
Vinification
Harvesting is manual and entirely destemmed.
3 weeks of fermentation with very light intervention.
Ageing
50% of new barrels are used for an aging period of 18 months.
